Men pretending to be police officers have been randomly pulling drivers over on the road and asking for ID.

The four men have been seen driving around Redbridge in a black VW Golf, stopping vehicles.

They ask for ID and when asked for their own, they drive off.

Clementswood Safer Neighbourhood team is warning people to always ask police officers for ID - whether they are stopped on the road or they knock on their door.

An e-mail sent to members said: "If you are stopped by anyone or if anyone knocks at your door, you should ask for their ID. "Close your door and window and if they are genuine they will be happy to wait whilst you check with their employer. If you think there is anything suspicious, please do not hesitate to contact us."
